Without their former all-star and starting third baseman in Moustakas, Travis Shaw was a candidate to fill that void in the infield. However, the Brewers decided to non-tender Shaw at the deadline after batting a career-low .157 AVG and numerous stints in AAA - San Antonio this past season.
Another surprising decision was to non-tender former starting pitcher, Jimmy Nelson. Nelson finally worked his way back to the big leagues this past season after a lengthy rehab of recovering from a shoulder injury that he suffered in 2017.
Tyler Saladino, Junior Guerra, and Alex Claudio were the remaining players to be non-tendered by the team.
Ben Gamel, Corey Knebel, and Brent Suter were the remaining players to be tendered contracts by the Brewers.
We'll also discuss all of this and more on The Fan, Tuesday night 6-8 p.m, on the first episode of Hot Stove Weekly with Tim Allen and former Brewers' reliever Paul Wagner.
